Happy Birthday, Gorgeous!

Happy-Birthday-Gorgeous-Jackie-Diediker-Stampin-UpGood morning! I have a sweet card to share with you today. This card I made for my Grandmother’s Birthday – which happened to land on Mother’s Day this year.

The main thing that drew me into this stamp set was the roses and the fun fonts. I am a sucker for roses, any type or style really. I just love the look and style of the flowers included in this stamp set. These flowers come with both the outline of the image and a background stamp to match. One of the features this stamp set has is that there are little arrows for reference when layering both stamps.

The Hello Gorgeous Stamp Set is offered as a bundle paired with a stylish ‘Happy Birthday’ Framelit Die. I will be sharing another sample using that die soon. I used three New In Colors on this card, yes, three!

The card base and the really light roses are all our softest In Color, Powder Pink. Our darker and brighter pink shade is the wonderful new Berry Burst. You can see Berry Burst stamped on the Powder Pink cardstock and on the Whisper White Stitched Oval. These Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies go with almost anything and running them through the Big Shot is a piece of cake. Last, but certainly not least is the deep teal tone – Tranquil Tide.

Not only are these little leaves all stamped with full strength and half strength for the color infill, but I also am featuring the new 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Tranquil Tide. This new ribbon has a fabulous texture and is super easy to work with, you are going to need this ribbon in all five In Colors!

I hope you enjoyed the card I shared with you today.

Something for Baby!

Made with Love Jackie Diediker Stampin UpI don’t know about you, but my April and May have been super busy. Last month I was invited to a family member’s Baby Shower! I wasn’t able to attend, but I made sure to send a fun gift that I thought her soon to come baby boy would enjoy!

As you probably expect, no Baby Shower gift is complete without a fun Baby card creation! I pulled out my staple Made with Love stamp set and got to work!

I love the versatility in this set, and I usually pair it some way with the Something for Baby stamp set for more pop. This time I added a sweet little dapper tie to my onesie using Pacific Point ink.

The theme for the Baby Shower was Royals baseball, so I made my own baseball. I used my out 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch a circle from some Whisper White cardstock. Then to complete the baseball I used the left over paper as a template to draw my own stitches on it with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker. Super simple and quick, but adds that extra dimension.

If you know the Royals Baseball team the colors are Royal Blue and White, which always looks good with a touch of silver! For my background I just knew that the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack that is still in my stash. These same patterns are still available in the 2015-2017 and 2016-2018 In Color Series Designer Series Paper Stack!

I hope you enjoyed this sweet card using my two favorite Baby sets combined. Remember both Something for Baby and the Made with Love Stamp Sets are on the retiring list, but you can order them now before they officially retired. Be sure to snatch them up before it’s too late!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List!

Good morning! I hope your having a wonderful day! Today I want to talk with you about the Retirement List which includes items from the Current 2016-17 Annual Catalog and the 2017 Occasions Catalog.

There are some items you need to be aware of that are sort of blanket statements. On the Retirement List you will find Bundles listed, even those items that are carrying on to the new Annual Catalog. The trick is that even if is a stamp set and a coordinating die set are carrying over they will not be available at the bundled price come the new Catalog.

There is some small print at the bottom of the Retirement List to pay attention to as it denotes these items. Some of these items are my favorites – they aren’t a leaving, but some just won’t be available at that extra 10% off anymore. But them now before they are unbundled for the savings:

  • Badges and Banners
  • Banners for You
  • Best Birds
  • Bunch of Blossoms
  • Cool Treats

  • Letters For You
